A Christian Worldview: My Future Career

Good Essays
Whether people choose to realize it or not, we all have a worldview. A worldview is a way in which we see the world and the people around us. A worldview is like looking through glasses because a person’s worldview clarifies the way, in which they view people and the world around them.

In regards to voting, I should vote for someone that holds the closest to my beliefs. That does not mean that I am looking for a pastor to be president, but rather that I look at what presidential candidate’s beliefs are and check their beliefs against the Bible. Voting for a candidate that aligns pretty close with what Christians believe is best because that means the candidate will do their best to run the country to honor God. Another key area that my worldview should influence is my future career because whatever I decide to do, I should have the mindset to honor and serve God with my career. As of right now, my future plans are to become a counselor and that aligns with my beliefs because I know that there are many people that are hurting in this world. Those hurting people need encouragement, but they also need to know that God is always there for them. Counseling is one way that I can let people know that no matter what they go through in life, there is always light at the end of the tunnel with God. Ultimately, my Biblical worldview should affect every aspect of my life and every decision that I make.

    All these are important aspects of Christianity. Having the right knowledge regarding these topics could make a difference in the way you view the world and the way you live your life. I believe that acknowledging that God is our creator and that he send his son Jesus Christ in order to restore humanity to God, is the beginning towards the correct kind of knowledge. “The God of creation is the unifying factor for our lives in general and for the integration of faith and learning in Christian higher education.” (Esqueda, 2014) I believe this knowledge makes Christian worldview different from other…

    There are some people who believe because of faith and there are others who need concrete evidence to believe. Overall, these discussions may be convincing to others because they have faith but may not be convincing to others because they need more than faith. As Christian, we may be put into circumstances where someone may discussion or debate about the existence of God. For example, others may try to prove that He does not exist, and well others may prove that there is no existence to show that He does exist at all. It is important as Christians to stand affirm strong in our basis of faith and not let others influence us.…
